Montessori Scores Higher

 Lansing’s Wexford Montessori Magnet School earned the higher MEAP scores in the Lansing School District last year, which will help students if Michigan passes a proposed bill to hold back third-graders who under-perform in reading.  House Bill No. 5111 introduced on Oct. 29 by Rep. Amanda Price states that beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, any third grader that does not score “proficient” on the reading section of the MEAP will not be permitted to move on to fourth grade. Wexford Montessori Magnet School, a K-8 school, is one of  the 24 public Montessori schools in the state of Michigan and is therefore required to administer the MEAP.
